Practitioner White helps those who are in the process of search applications whether they are working at the desktop, website, intranet or enterprise levels, including information on the devices and software now on the market. He describes the workings of the search function (including indexing, taxonomy management, query management, confidentiality and other functions) as well as the theoretical underpinnings. He describes the search businesses and the ways to make a business case for search, ways to specify and select a search engine and optimize search performance, search usability and user interaction, desktop search, web search, the ten-step process of intranet search implementation, enterprise search (including the budget challenge), multilingual search (a prime consideration in this globalizing world) and future directions. White is of the opinion search is going to be a very big business indeed, and that business intelligence and search will converge.
